started out as WN8AGD, then became
WD8AGD when I upgraded to
Technician. When I got my Extra
in 1980 (I was a H.S. senior), I
became KG8L. I kept that call
until we built the house here in
Georgia; figured I was gonna stay
here – I ought to get a ‘4’ call!
I checked the other
day, and WD8AGD has not been
reissued. KG8L has been reissued

[070Club] KN4 calls - blast from
the past !
Yup, all the new
Technician calls here are KN4 here
lately. I didn't realize that they
were old novice calls. Neat!

Those of us who were
around in the 50's & 60's
might remember the KN prefix as
that for Novice licensees. If you
don't that's okay.
about 3 in the past few days.
Looks like the FCC ran out of
prefixes and has opened up the KN4
block... figuring no one will not
if they not told they have
recycled calls, hi ! hi!
It's good to see them
back on the air. My club call ,
K9ATI, was originally that of a
high school buddy Skip Dewell,
KN9ATI, and later K9ATI. Searched
for him, but no sign anywhere.
Anyhow, I you work a KN call
outside of 4-land, you might ask
if that was operators original
What's next ?
Reissueing W, WB, WA, WD ,K and
back to N calls ???
